A survey of Bulan Hosting

We, at mortw.org, have picked 'Bulan Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this concise assessment of 'Bulan Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Bulan Hosting' currently offers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Bulan Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at mortw.org, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared site hosting packages provided by 'Bulan Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans supplied by 'Bulan Hosting' are powered by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an autonomous group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting suppliers are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your site grows. That way, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Every hosting account offered by 'Bulan Hosting' includes an online website builder and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Bulan Hosting' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole planet is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Bulan Hosting' are very well appointed and come at an excellent price (beginning from $3.33 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Bulan Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared package through a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting accounts. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not ship with full root access (we, at mortw.org, think of this as a little drawback), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Bulan Hosting' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In mortw.org's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Bulan Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its users' requirements, 'Bulan Hosting' provides a number of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of web site. According to 'Bulan Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from mortw.org, believe that all dedicated server specifications offered by 'Bulan Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server includes free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Bulan Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at mortw.org, think of this as a slight minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (mortw.org's) forecast is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (mortw.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Bulan Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
